Today’s congressional hearing on China’s soft power influence-peddling against the United States needs to result in action.
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte wants to be free to pivot toward China without entirely losing the United States as an ally and as a trading partner, having his cake and eating it too.
That the Kim Jong-un regime is oppressive is not up for debate, but the wisdom of pledging the United States to preventive military intervention in North Korea most certainly is.
Both President Trump and Chinese President Xi strive to make their own country great again. The world is wondering: who will get most of what he wants and who will cave?
Since the high-performing East Asia region is dominated by people with Chinese-style education, does this mean that’s superior to American schools?
Media outlets weep that this is a crime against humanity, denouncing a Muslim ‘massacre’ going on in Myanmar, almost completely ignoring that this is a vicious, both-sided conflict.
While the test of a hydrogen bomb has been expected by North Korea analysts for some time, it has nonetheless triggered a nuclear war-scare in the United States.
Naturally, everyone assumes that Kim Jong-Un’s aggression targets the United States. What we have missed is that the other real target of Kim’s aggression is China.
No, the secretary of Defense is not leading or participating in a cabinet-level coup against the duly elected president of the United States.
North Korea shows no signs of simply maintaining the status quo. It is pushing rapidly toward a nuclear weapon and continually provokes its neighbors.

A leaked Defense Intelligence Agency report says the Kim regime has made a warhead small enough to fit onto a long-range missile. Even if true, he’s got a long way to go.
The expanded Russia sanctions have come at a low point in U.S. relations with its allies and an increased lack of trust in American leadership, calling into question how effective they will be.
China’s insistence that U.S. surveillance flights constitute provocations is an attempt by Beijing to treat its assertion of sovereignty in the region as a fait accompli.
The Asian version of the conflict between House Lannister and House Stark is playing out over a patch of remote land high in the Himalayas, bordered by China, India, and Bhutan.
Since Chinese authorities won’t let Liu Xiaobo leave China for medical help, he probably will die soon. But his efforts to speak the truth will endure.
North Korea’s human rights atrocities signal an only greater risk for military and humanitarian crises in the future. The U.S. must act now.
